Yes, you can make oval loaves with a round BreadMat. I do it all the time!

The v2, -L, and -C all feature a solid silicone border to strengthen the mat
The v2 is the same size as the Original BreadMat
The -L has longer handles
The -C is cut perfectly for The Challenger Bread Pan

Which one should you get? Sizing below based on popular vessels:

Vessel BreadMat Size
Lodge 4.5 Qt. Dutch Oven The BreadMat v2
Lodge 6 Qt. Dutch Oven -L or v2
Lodge 7 Qt. Dutch Oven The BreadMat-L
Field Company No 10 The BreadMat-L
Challenger Bread Pan The BreadMat-C
Lodge 3.2 Qt. Combo Cooker The BreadMat v2
Le Creuset Bread Oven The BreadMat v2

I cannot recommend the Lodge 5 Qt. Combo Cooker or the Lodge 5qt Dutch Oven as the diameter is too small and the uncoated rough interior can cause wear on the mat which can shorten its longevity. If you already own one of these, I recommend purchasing the Lodge 3.2 Qt. Combo Cooker and using the base of that (which perfectly fits The BreadMat) with the deeper side of the Combo Cooker or Dutch Oven as a lid.

SKU: BreadMat Category:


The BreadMat™ is a reusable parchment paper replacement. It is shaped to fit the majority of popular baking vessels.

Strong handles make moving bread in and out of a hot oven easier and safer than using parchment.

The unique patented design enhances heat distribution, evening color and reducing burns.

It is made from LFGB platinum food-safe silicone and is rated to 500F.

The BreadMat will reduce dark spots and encourage even baking on the bottom of your loaf, but if it still too dark after using The BreadMat, it is recommended to place a heavy baking sheet on the bottom rack of your oven to act as a heat shield to further reduce darkening and to protect your BreadMat from excessive heat.

Return Policy:
Since these are a food contact item, I cannot return opened BreadMats.

The BreadMat is manufactured in China

  1. Meadow @meadows_bakes

    These are a must have! I was using a bread sling from Amazon and it’s flimsy and hot out of the oven and the bottoms of my loaves were still getting too dark. These mats are so much sturdier and make the bottom of my loaves perfectly evenly brown! And I love the textures they leave, it’s so pretty! 😍 Bravo! Telling all my friends about them ☺️

    Absolutely love this product. So easy to use and care for. No longer feel the guilt of using so much parchment. I also feel like the bottom of my bread has more consistent browning. I will definitely recommend or maybe gift 🤫 this to the 2 friends that convinced me I could bake bread.

    I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally have these bread mats!
    I have a micro bakery and efficiency and economy are super important! I don’t have to buy stacks and stacks of parchment paper anymore so that’s a win financially and from a waste perspective!
    So glad I got it on the ground floor and got mine! Looking forward to many happy bakes. 🙏🏻

    I’ve been using an Amazon version of the bread mat for almost a year, and I knew there had to be a better design.
    TheBreadMat solved all the problems I had with the Amazon version. It is not too hot to touch coming out of the oven, it’s sturdy and durable, and it has the perfect circumference to fit my bigger boules.
    I am super happy with @thebreadmat and I’m telling everyone. Haha! If you bake bread, buy it. It’s worth every Penny.

    Finally! I have been baking bread for almost a year now and I can not tell you how many rolls of parchment paper I went through. I was cutting my parchment paper the same shape as The Bread Mat, because it’s so convenient to place a loaf into a Dutch oven without burning hands. However, I felt like I was wasting so much paper that way. So grateful for this product! I bake boules and batards on it and both shapes fit very nicely. After baking, I just rinse it with water and it’s brand new. I also noticed that the bottom of my loaves get a very even color and don’t burn as much as without it. The quality is amazing! I am so pleased with it that I’m shipping one out to my friend in England. It’s a must item for every baker to have.
